    Hello there,

    I own a Toshiba 36ZP18. When I plug my playstation into it, the picture is incredibly fuzzy.

    It's playable but not as sharp as I was expecting.

    DVD's and cable are fine.

    Does anyone have any pointers?

    Thanks.

    Mike

    How are you connecting it?

    I've got the 36ZP and with Gamecube and X Box via RGB its crystal clear!!

    Even with composite its impressive but you get the usual fizzing and more blurred edges with noise especially in reds.

    Make sure the TV is set to 100Hz with DNR off.

    Also... Use Picture Mode 3. Then go into the menu and increase the brightness, contrast etc to around 50 or so. By using Picture Mode 3, you get rid of the AWFUL "Dynamic Contrast" which IMO ruins the image. Just try it out and all that fuzzy stuff will be gone...

    Also make sure you are using an RGB cable for both consoles and connect it to AV1. The other inputs are only composite and S-Video which offers a poorer image quality.

    If you're wondering on how to split AV1 (RGB) to more sockets for your Xbox/PS2/etc then buy a Scart Video Box from Argos... £9.95. I forgot the actual catalogue page number... But its the one that does not have the scart lead already attatched. I think it could be around pages 684... Have a browse anyway.

    With this you can split the one available RGB socket (TV) into three (scartbox).

    That's exactly what I've done and I was pleasently surprised by the quality of the image passed through this cheap box. No discernable difference to my eyes.
